Looking and sounding like a herd
of thundering buffalo, thousands of
freshmen, transfers and returning
students poured into Chapel Hill
during the weekend of Aug. 17 much

After hours of heaving boxes,
trunks and bags into dormitory
rooms, UNC students hit Franklin

increased substantially during the

Executive Branch retreat
By KAREN YOUNGBLOOD
Staff Writer .
About 35 members of the Executive
Branch of Student Government
retreated last Friday, not from hostile
students, but to Camp Caraway, where
they made plans for the year and
addressed student concerns.
Ray Wallington, an executive assist
ant to Student Body President Patricia
Wallace, said one of the topics discussed
was communication between Student
Government and students.
"One of the major points was opening
up communication within Student
Government and with the student
population," Wallington said. "The
student governments in the past have
reached only a small sector of . the
population. We're working on develop
ing a sort of special relationship between
the student population and the
Wallington said the executive branch
planned to open communication
through a newly created committee
called the Campus Liaison Committee.
Wallington said the committee would
act as an ombudsman between the
executive branch and students.
"Through that, well try to reach
students and student organizations," he
said. "If it helps in no other way, it serves
to extend the normal reins of Student
Government and involve the students.
If it works, we will have ties into
everything on campus. And if it works
well, we should be made aware of
Heather Powell, Wallace's executive
secretary, said another concern
addressed at the retreat was the com
munication between students and the
"Until we close out all the "evidence
needed to locate Stewart the case is still
open," he said.
"It's a real delicate situation right,
now, and we are waiting for informa
tion. Until we find her we can't release
any more information. We don't want
to jeopardize the case, so we don't want
to comment," he said.
As of late Thursday afternoon, the
whereabouts of Stewart were still
unknown, and police are continuing to
search for her. Earlier Thursday, several
local news organizations reported that
Stewart's body had been found in a
shallow grave in a rock quarry off of
Highway 54 west. The remains were
later found to be those of an animal.
Wright was arrested in Nashville
Monday for driving his father's stolen
pickup truck, and Nashville police had
planned to return him to North Carol
ina to face larceny charges.
Hillsborough police would not say
when the truck was reported stolen.
North Carolina authorities asked the
Nashville Juvenile Court to turn over
Wright's clothing and hair samples in

One topic causing controversy and
concern for Chapel Hill businessmen
and bar-owners throughout the state
is the 21 drinking age. The new law,
scheduled to go into effect in October
1986, will virtually eliminate drink
ing by freshmen and sophomores.
The proposal has angered the major
ity of underclassmen and disturbed
the management of area bars who
cater to UNC students.
"Of course, the new law will have
an effect on business," Burnette said.
Burnette's concerns are not only
with the profits He's Not Here will
lose, but also with the damage it will
do to the entire Chapel Hill
r; vTaxes are" a "major part "of our
business, and in paying them, we are
returning to. the school what it has
given us," he said.
"In a bar the atmosphere is
controlled, with bouncers and
responsible bartenders. Those who
will no longer be able to be super
vised will be encouraged even more
to illegally get beer and find them
selves in the wrong situations."
Burnette's comments summarize
those of other managers of bars and
restaurants. Even though "raths
keller" in German means "the wine
house," its namesake on East Frank
lin St. won't feel the punch of the
new law much.
"Our revenues come overwhelm
ingly from food service," Charles
Smith, The Rathskeller's manager,
said. "We don't expect to suffer
many losses because of the drinking
"We came up with a bunch of ideas,"
Powell said. "Patricia's the main link
with the administration, but we're also
working on a chancellor committee.
That's a link with the administration
that over the years has been kind of
Powell said the executive branch also
was making Student Government job
descriptions to ease the transition of
subsequent student governments.
"One big long-range plan was work
ing on the transition," Powell said.
"Apparently, people had a hard time
Wallington said the creation of a job
description handbook would help
student governments in the future.
"In the past, people would come in
and be given a certain job title but
weren't aware of what exactly their job
was," he said. "The term of the student
body president is not that long. When
they have to take time to start the ball
rolling, it cuts down on time you could
use to handle problems on campus."
Both Wallington and Powell said that
although there were no big issues facing
the executive branch now as there have
been in the past, people within it were
bracing themselves for any issues that
"Really, 1 think that any major issue
we face will be one we form," Walling
ton said. "There is no really big issue
facing the campus right now. Given the
situation in South Africa, that could be
a major issue in coming months. But
we have to be prepared for that."
"We are ready," Powell said. "There
will probably be one problem on
parking or something like that soc"er

not mention the kidnapping and armed
robbery charges sworn out against him.
Chapel Hill police would not describe
how they connected Wright to the
kidnapping case. They also would not
comment on what type of efforts were
being made to find Stewart.

and defend his tax proposals.
Reagan's last trip to North Carolina
was to Charlotte in October 1984, where
he met with Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C, .
and former Charlotte Mayor Eddie
Knox during a campaign stop. His last
visit to Raleigh was in October 1982,
when he awarded singer Kate Smith the
Medal of Freedom.
John Kanipe, vice chancellor for
development at NCSU, said the univer

Reagan a considerable time ago and
that the president recently had accepted.
"The speech will be of national policy

that it is appropriate to announce his

"We didn't cause any trouble. We just

some of the new semester's tension.
